Creve Coeur, MO (KSDK) - St. Louis County Police continue to search for the man who hid inside a Creve Coeur area Dollar Tree store Monday evening, waiting for the business to close for the night so he could strike.

Around 9:00 p.m. Monday, workers at the store located on Olive at Ross Road locked the store for the night, only to face a masked man armed with a knife who announced a robbery as the two employees were wrapping up the books for the evening.

The suspect tied the employees before cleaning out the cash drawers and fleeing the location.

Investigators say the man was also wearing latex gloves during the hold-up.  No one was hurt in the incident.

Anyone who may have information to assist investigators should contact the St. Louis County Police.
